   As the `SIR Reset' is not solved yet I tried this:
   - Replace all `sir' opcodes to `nop' in locore.s.
   - Put them back until I get the `SIR Reset' instead of a hard lock.
   Thus tracked it down to this `sir'.

   Is it really possible to reach this statement?
   Any chance to get a trace or otherwise debug it?

what does "ctrace" from the prom say at this point?  that should
give you a stack trace you can feed addresses back to GDB for
to get line numbers.

the above code fires when a *second* datafault occurs while
trying to process a datafault.  it normally means that the
stack is corrupted or that %sp is wrong.  yuck.  (this is
one of the problems that can occur on SMP kernels...)
